sun bleached driftwood
a belching of black seaweed
using a stick to create a heart
drawing our initials
wanting to hold your hand
feel your warmth.
the sun ending its day
falling beneath the waves
the tide rolling in
erasing my heart
erasing our initials
putting an end to all I dream.
As the Front End Lead Supervisor, I had to do Employee Evaluations for approximately 45-50 employees. Granted I would hand some off to my 2nd but always the easy one. Employees that she regularly worked with. And I had all the rest. So while she would do 15 maybe the balance were mine. The fact that I do not have to do them this year is nothing short than an absolute joy. As I write this I am doing the sit down happy dance.
Each evaluation contained several parts: How they had achieved on the goal that I had given them last year. Where they excelled in their position. What areas could they improve in. What my goal was for them in the upcoming year.
I did not work with a lot of my ‘kids’ as they only worked evenings and Saturdays. As I worked every other Saturday and was constantly on the move, I am sure that they did not realize what I was doing. Until we sat down and I went over the evaluation with them.
I observe. When I was bagging the customers groceries I was watching how they were handling themselves. If they were applying all the customer service skills that were a part of their job. When I walked passed I could hear what was being said and the tone it was being said in. I was constantly observing.
Although I am not going to be doing the evaluations this year, I am still in observation mode. Now though, I observe so as to create characters when I write, and that is way more fun. LOL 🙂
